And you wonder why nothing goes over well in Lamar. The elected officials sit on the fence.
Oktoberfest is much better in other cities who welcome events, Lamar just can't get with it! La Veta has a good Oktoberfest and La Veta is much smaller than Lamar, but then it's leadership!

I am all for having a good event, but let's be real here, couldn't $1200 be spent on promoting something that a higher number of people would enjoy? How about a musical performer? La Junta gets people we have heard of in to perform, not Bavarian Dancers.

I don't always agree with the commissioners but they got this one right. As did the private donors who paid for the dancers.

I fail to see how it is the responsibility of any govt entity to pay dancers to entertain a crowd. This looks like something the commercial club should do. That or private donations.

If the 'bavarian dancers' perform at
a hotel or motel in lamar, would that
make a difference?

Good call by the commisioners. The money is to be used for advertising of events that bring commerce to Prowers County. Not for painting the train or buying a golf cart for the enchanted forest. Bet you didn't know that the World Series got a chunk of this money and most of our county didn't even see the teams, they went to the Springs shopping one day with courtesy cars. Imagine that! Go get the finacials they are public record you would be amazed.

Actually smart than you think. By the way I was at the games and very entertaining, baseball happens to be my favorite sport! You can get the financials at any of the meetings or go to the courthouse and request them.
